Fluoride will be added to drinking water for millions of people in the UK under new legal powers. It will be the biggest expansion of the health measure since the 1980s.

Around 1.6 million people in the North East could get the mineral added to their water, and ministers say their long-term ambition is to bring fluoride to more of the country with a “particular focus” on deprived areas.

With this annoucement comes a rapidly growing need for reliable and efficient methods to monitor fluoride levels in drinking water. Fluoride, a natural mineral crucial for dental health, requires careful monitoring to maintain optimal concentrations in drinking water.

How do we monitor Fluoride?

At Metrohm Process Analytics, we offer state-of-the-art solutions designed to streamline fluoride analysis, ensuring accurate measurements and peace of mind. Metrohm offer an online continuous monitoring solution with the standard addition ISE method. The 2026 Fluoride Analyser from Metrohm Process Analytics is the most straightforward and easy-to-use tool to do so online.

Fluoride is determined by Dynamic Standard addition (DSA) method over a defined calibration range. The detection is performed with a Metrohm Fluoride ion-selective electrode (F-ISE). This analytical method gives improved accuracy over single point calibration to give operators confidence for dosing control.

Save money and reduce risk by more accurately monitoring Fluoride content.
